It's absolutely true that images or any other intellectual property need not be marked as copyrighted to be copyrighted. I am a big, big believer in respecting intellectual property. However... this response is a bit Draconian. If you simply save and print the picture for you own personal use, there is no infringement. That's the basic equivilent of, say, clipping a picture out of the newspaper and saving it in a folder. It's "fair use". As long as you don't display it in a public setting, there isn't a problem. It's when you take the picture and put it on your own web site (with or without an acknowledgement), or otherwise display the image in a public setting, that you start getting into trouble.
